For the third time in the last week, a burglar has broken into a laundry room on Hall County Housing Authority property.

The latest crime was committed Monday or Tuesday at 146 Pletcher Terrace. A door was forced open and a coin box was damaged in a Laundromat attached to a residence.

The previous burglaries were committed at 147 Pletcher Terrace.

“No reason to believe this is not related to the previous two,” said Grand Island Police Capt. Jim Duering. The crimes “look very similar in nature,” but he doesn’t have much else to report, he said.

“We know we have someone who’s hitting the laundry rooms up there at the Hall County Housing buildings,” Duering said.

The first burglary took place June 19. A door and jamb were damaged along with two lock boxes. Cash was taken.

On June 20, another burglary was reported at the same location, where items were taken and broken.
